    Abstract: In the aromatherapy industry in Taiwan, due to the confusing professional
    certification system and nationals’ misunderstanding of this profession, there have
    been some misconceptions and misapprehension about the social status and role of
    aromatherapists. As a result, it is common for aromatherapy business practitioners to
    encounter a lot of work pressure and profession-related frustrations. Thus, this study
    adopted the in-depth interview method, a qualitative research method, with 7
    aromatherapists as the interviewees, to explore aromatherapists’ professional
    environment, service obstructions, achievements, and professional adjustments.
    This study found that in Taiwan the professional environment for
    aromatherapists is a working environment with a short history of industrial
    development, a vague professional system, a low professional status, and some
    cultural prejudices about this profession from the general public. Thus, in the process
    of the professional development of an aromatherapist, the most commonly
    encountered setbacks include: professional exhaustion, insufficient professionalism,
    sexual harassment, and job discrimination. Aromatherapists’ achievements can be
    summarized into 3 aspects, customers’ recognition and feedbacks, benefitting families
    and friends around, and personal improvements in body, mind, and soul. And in the
    face of frustration, the interviewees’ ways of adjustments can be summarized into 6
    categories: physical and psychological relief, support from community, dependence
    on vision of the future, professional upgrade, value reconstruction and changing.
